This is my first of many I hope posts of rational Progressive opinion at The Blaze

From the very start of this manufactured crisis I didn’t think that it was important. Now, I think it’s even less important. A&E made a social decision initially and now they’ve made a corporate decision. This isn’t a victory for conservatives, or Christian beliefs this is simply the result of a few bean counters at A&E realizing that they can make more money letting Phil have his bigoted beliefs out loud than they could by making a socio-political martyr out of him. The Robertsons have one thing that most of the conservatives here celebrating “victory” don’t and that is money. In five years no one will recall this and Duck Dynasty will likely have passed into the cable and satellite great beyond with the likes of the Real World and actual music videos on MTV.

In real public policy terms conservatives have been losing every battle of the nearly ended Culture Wars since the late 1990s. The only reason the TEA Party exists is to glean the last dollars they can from those middle class citizens that remain who hold right and far right values and fear for the futures of their progeny. Of course, we all know these fears are unfounded in such a large and diverse nation as America and that the kids are alright.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
